Fujiso Banko Ware Sencha Tea Pot

Fujiso Banko Ware Sencha Tea Pot
More than a simple piece of ceramic, this tea pot is a wonderful living object that becomes increasingly beautiful with the passage of time. Thus, due to the oil contained in the tea, the pot will become more shiny over the years; moreover, the special glaze on the inside of the pot has very small cracks like fine veins, which gradually become more visible and create an interesting pattern that adds to the beauty of the pot.

Fujiso Bankoware Ceramics

 

 

Fujisō is famous for making Banko earthenware, especially tea pots and tea cups. Their products are known and appreciated all over Japan, as it is said that tea prepared and served in Fujisō ware keeps its strong flavour and taste intact (this is, in fact, one of the most important aspects that distinguishes Fujisō from other craftsmen in Japan).

The company was established in its modern form in 1907, but it boasts a long tradition that goes back for more than two hundred years, to the Edo period. It is located in the city of Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture, close to the beautiful Ise Bay, in an area rich in resources such as clay, water, and wood. The company is now managed by the fourth generation of the Fujii family.

Description

Details

More than a simple piece of ceramic, this tea pot is a wonderful living object that becomes increasingly beautiful with the passage of time. Thus, due to the oil contained in the tea, the pot will become more shiny over the years; moreover, the special glaze on the inside of the pot has very small cracks like fine veins, which gradually become more visible and create an interesting pattern that adds to the beauty of the pot.

All the pots are made by hand, one by one, and then carefully baked until they acquire the warm brownish color that distinguishes them from other earthenware. The rim at the top has a special design that enhances the flavor of the tea: the part of the rim near the spout has more than one hundred small holes, all carefully made by hand. The holes hold back even the smallest leaves in the pot while allowing for the tea to be poured easily. The lid of the pot has very fine indentations on the side, which have the double effect of letting air in when pouring, thus ensuring a constant flow of tea, and of preventing water drops from sticking on the inside. The lid has a nice dome-like shape with beautiful curves that make it a unique object in itself.

The traditional Japanese design of the pot – round and short – guarantees that the leaves have enough room to open in the steaming hot water and to release all their precious aroma. Thus, the wonderful flavor of the tea is fully preserved.
